South Korea forward Ji returning to Augsburg
AUGSBURG, Germany (AP) — South Korea forward Ji Dong-won is returning to Augsburg only half a season after he moved to Borussia Dortmund.
Augsburg said Monday that the 23-year-old Ji signed a 3 ½-year contract with the club. Neither team gave details of the transfer deal.
Ji moved to Dortmund in the summer but only played for the club’s second team in an injury-hit first half to the season.
Ji said: “I want to regain my form as quickly as possible and help the team to achieve our aims.”
Augsburg went into the Bundesliga’s winter break in sixth place after an unexpectedly strong start to the season. In contrast, Dortmund is bottom but one.
